Police in Staffordshire are investigating a shocking video showing a taxi driver being racially abused by his passenger.
The footage, which has been viewed over 300,000 times on Facebook, also demands the driver hands back his fare and an extra £10.
During the video, a man sitting in the front passenger seat is capturing the incident on what looks to be a mobile device. The man can be heard chanting 'England Till We Die' before targeting the cabbie with a tirade of verbal racial abuse.
The male passenger first calls the driver a “f***ing f****t”, and then demands his money back threatening to “smash his head in and take his taxi off him”.
The passenger then shouts: "You're getting terrorised by English people because you're a dirty P*** b*****d bruv. Dirty Muslim b*****d."
A Staffordshire Police spokesperson said: “This matter is currently under investigation.”
Local MP for Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove, Jonathan Gullis, called those responsible “mindless idiots”.
In his full statement made on social media Gullis MP said: "What a disgrace from those mindless idiots. I hope the full weight of the law is thrown at them.
“Racism has no place in our society and I will champion all the good done by our local black and Asian community.
"These racists don't speak for the people of Stoke-on-Trent."
The video was posted by DOAM. If you choose to view the footage please be warned of racial language that readers and viewers may find distressing.
